Katara Cultural Center, Doha, Qatar

The Cultural Village Foundation is an exceptional project of hope for human interaction through art and cultural exchange – a project made possible thanks to the inspired vision, solid faith and wise leadership of HH Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al Thani, the Father Emir​ of the State of Qatar. Keeping pace with the emerging global culture that emphasises the importance of diversity in human development, Katara Cultural Village is the largest and the most multidimensional cultural project of Qatar. It is a place where people come together to experience the cultures of the world. With beautiful theatres, concert halls, exhibition galleries and cutting-edge facilities, Katara aims to become a world leader for multi-cultural activities. In line with the goals set forward by the Qatar National Vision 2030, Katara serves as a guardian to the heritage and traditions of Qatar and endeavours to spread awareness about the importance of every culture and civilization and as such, Katara hosts international, regional and local festivals, workshops, performances and exhibitions.

  1. Excellent venue

    Routes from car parking to the main promenade and restaurants is straightforward. Good signage throughout venue. Helpful staff.

  2. Disappointing

    One of the best attractions in Qatar but poor design from an accessibility perspective. Underground parking has no elevator to ground level, golf buggies are not disabled-friendly and the cobbled walkways throughout the venue are very uncomfortable for wheelchair users.
